The Art of Heather Macali
Coastal Carolina University’s Department of Visual Arts presents The Art of Heather Macali, on view October 21st through November 22nd, in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery on campus in Conway. Heather Macali’s woven compositions are infused with an adoration of colors and patterns arising from childhood experiences steeped in the material culture of the Midwest, specifically beloved 1980s and 1990s games and cartoons such as Transformers and Rainbow Brite. Compelled to create work that is inspired by positive memories from this time, Macali has chosen to combat society’s addition to violent stories using vibrant colors and visually stimulating patterns. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A lecture will be held November 7th at 2 p.m., followed by a reception from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
